An Encounter with Four Rabbis-to-be

By Joy Levitt, Chana Forse, Bob Levine, Stanley Spracker, Chaim Casper

Eugene Borowitz, March 3, 1978

This document presents transcribed selections from a conversation between four rabbinical students, one each from Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RRC), Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and Yeshiva University's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS). The students discuss their reasons for choosing the rabbinical schools which they chose; the quality and focus of education they are receiving; ways in which their respective denominations are changing; and the current state and trends of relationships between the denominations.
